Item description for Brian Jones - Who Killed Christopher Robin?: The Truth Behind The Murder of a Rolling Stone by Terry Rawlings...

Brian Jones was initially the Stones' creative driving force, but by the late '60s, he was drinking too much and strung out on drugs. He left the band in 1969 and three weeks later was found dead in his swimming pool. Acclaimed author Terry Rawlings draws on new interviews to document Brian's ill-fated final days and hours and names his murderer.

Reviews - What do customers think about Brian Jones - Who Killed Christopher Robin?: The Truth Behind The Murder of a Rolling Stone?

It explains a lot . .  Mar 24, 2008
If you are old enough to remember Brian and the early years of the British bands, this is a very interesting read. It makes sense and is probably the closest one will ever get to the truth of his life and death. I also saw it as a supplement to "Stone Alone." Well written, well documented.
Who Killed Christopher Robin  Mar 2, 2008
Terry Rawlings, has written a great book in the 1960s i was in a Band
that was hailed as the american stones .( The Rave Ups) and met the stones
and became, a good friend of Brians a week before he was killed he
came to RADA in London to see me act, Terry's book cuts to the point
of what happened. May Frank Thorogood BURN IN HELL
Engaging and captures a true sense of Jones' early life...packed with rare photos  Jan 9, 2007
Great read if you're a fan of Brian Jones and his work. Compared it with Bill Wyman's book, STONE ALONE, and details of his early struggles as a musician are pretty similar. As with any biography, what's true and what is not is always very questionable. However, this book gives the reader an insight of what kind of life Jones probably led and the path to his demise. I would rate STONE ALONE ahead of this book for reliable information because it's from the Stones' bassist himself. The Anna Wohlin book reads like a romantic novel, and the material is very questionable. This book is more for diehard fans of Brian Jones.
Who Killed Christopher Robin  Sep 24, 2006
I have this book and felt it did not show the real Brian Jones. Brian was a very intelligent, great musician,
and basically a good and decent man. When people use drugs/alcohol their personality changes dramatically.
When Brian was at Cotchford Farm he was attempting to get his life back on track. In writing about Brian
one has to remember this was the Sixties and the culture, attitudes and social beliefs were entirely different
than in the following decades. Brian was a drug addict and probably an alcoholic. He was trying to cope with
his problems with the other band members, his life in general. Since there was no rehab or counseling like
there is today he felt this was the only way to handle it. I truly believe Brian Jones was definitely murdered.
Probably by Frank Thorogood with some help. Brian was more than the demonized versions I have seen in
several books. It is only fair to this musician to portray him in all aspects and not just when he was messed
up, and depressed. He was often compassionate, kind and cared deeply about his loyal friends. Let us remember this please
Of all the Brian Jones books, the best IMHO  Aug 2, 2006
Brian Jones was the founder of the Rolling Stones, and this book unflinchingly lays everything out about his life for the reader. Based on years of research and interviews with people that knew him, it is probably the most factual of the books I have read. It also lays the ground for some serious discussion about the possibility that Brian's swimming pool death was not accidental. This is not a "new" revelation - murky details about the death have been scrutinized pretty much since the day after it happened in July 1969. The author clearly demonstrates that it is within the realm of extreme possibility that Brian's death was no accident. Oh, and someone allegedly confessed, as well.

Apparently Keith Richards has spent some effort over the years trying to get to the bottom of just what happened the night Brian died. This is the book that Keith said, "...the cat [the author] probably got it about right". This statement says to me that Keith feels this is probably the closest we'll ever get to any truth.
